As the title says, FordPass isn't available here (Google Play), and I'd like to have more cheesy gimmicks for my Bronco.

I could probably just turn my VPN on or find the apk file somewhere, but I'd like to know if there'd be any region lock issues beforehand.

It'd also be nice to know why it isn't available. Would be a fun lil' marketing scheme. ("Pre-cool your Bronco from your phone!")

When I worked at GM in OnStar IT, I was part of the group developing releasing OnStar in new regions. One of the biggest set backs was getting carriers onboard in other countries and my guess it’s nothing technical Ford simply doesn’t have a carrier to talk to the vehicle.

Fair enough, thanks for the clarification!

Off topic: how many Broncos are in Kuwait? I've seen a total of 1 the out of the 6 months I've been out there.

Loads. They're far outselling Wranglers right now, and you can kinda spot them rather frequently if you're within the city. Most of them are 2-door Big Bends, too.

Thats awesome! When I saw one on the road I had to do a triple take. For some reason I just didn't expect to see any here. I'm itching to get back home to drive mine again.
